1. Removal of nail polish and finger rings to prevent surgical infection. (PubMed)

Removal of nail polish and finger rings to prevent surgical infection. Surgical wound infections may be caused by the transfer of bacteria from the hands of surgical teams to patients during operations. Surgical scrubbing prior to surgery reduces the number of bacteria on the skin, but wearing rings and nail polish on the fingers may reduce the efficacy of scrubbing, as bacteria may remain in microscopic imperfections of nail polish and on the skin beneath rings.To assess the effect (...) of the presence or absence of rings and nail polish on the hands of the surgical scrub team on postoperative wound infection rates.For this fifth update, we searched The Cochrane Wounds Group Specialised Register (searched 23 July 2014); The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The Cochrane Library); Ovid MEDLINE; Ovid MEDLINE (In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations); Ovid EMBASE and EBSCO CINAHL.Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the effect of wearing or removing finger

3. A Modified String Technique for Atraumatic Ring Removal. (PubMed)

A Modified String Technique for Atraumatic Ring Removal. We describe a modified string technique for ring removal from an edematous finger, a critical step in the initial treatment of a patient with upper-extremity trauma.This technique involves multiple sutures looped around the ring to provide differential tension on the ring as it is advanced distally over a lubricated digit. With the use of an assistant, the ring can be advanced in caterpillar fashion without sliding back proximal when (...) the direct pressure is released as a result of edema.This multisuture technique adds to the armamentarium of methods for ring removal in the setting of upper-extremity trauma without reverting to alternate techniques for cutting or shattering the ring.Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Inc.

6. Evaluation of a two rubber band technique for finger ring removal (PubMed)

Evaluation of a two rubber band technique for finger ring removal Rings are required to be removed from a finger in many clinical situations. Rings that are difficult to remove is a problem encountered frequently. Many techniques have been reported for this problem. This study looks at the effectiveness of a single technique for removing difficult rings from fingers.A two rubber band technique was used in this study of 69 difficult to remove rings. Success of the technique and time to removal (...) were recorded.Difficult rings were removed in 92.5% of cases, in a mean time of 10.7 seconds. No fingers or rings suffered damage during the study.This two rubber band technique is a rapid, safe and effective method for removing rings that cannot be removed easily.

7. Lidocaine relaxation in isolated rat aortic rings is enhanced by endothelial removal: possible role of K<sub>v</sub>, K<sub>ATP</sub> channels and A<sub>2a</sub> receptor crosstalk. (PubMed)

Lidocaine relaxation in isolated rat aortic rings is enhanced by endothelial removal: possible role of Kv, KATP channels and A2a receptor crosstalk. Lidocaine is an approved local anesthetic and Class 1B antiarrhythmic with a number of ancillary properties. Our aim was to investigate lidocaine's vasoreactivity properties in intact versus denuded rat thoracic aortic rings, and the effect of inhibitors of nitric oxide (NO), prostenoids, voltage-dependent Kv (...) (4-AP), glibenclamide, 5-hydroxydecanoate, ouabain, 8-(3-chlorostyryl) caffeine and PSB-0788 were examined.All drugs tested had no significant effect on basal tension. Lidocaine relaxation in intact rings was biphasic between 1 and 10 μM (Phase 1) and 10 and 1000 μM (Phase 2). Mechanical removal of the endothelium resulted in further relaxation, and at lower concentrations ring sensitivity (% relaxation per μM lidocaine) significantly increased 3.5 times compared to intact rings.

10. How to Surgically Remove the Permanent Mesh Ring after the Onstep Procedure for Alleviation of Chronic Pain following Inguinal Hernia Repair (PubMed)

How to Surgically Remove the Permanent Mesh Ring after the Onstep Procedure for Alleviation of Chronic Pain following Inguinal Hernia Repair A promising open inguinal hernia operation called Onstep was developed in 2005. The technique is without sutures to the surrounding tissue, causing minimal tension. A specific mesh is used with a memory recoil ring in the border, which may cause pain superficial to the lateral part of the mesh for slender patients. The aim of this study was to illustrate (...) an easy procedure that alleviates/removes the pain. A male patient had persistent pain six months after the Onstep operation and therefore had a ring removal operation. The procedure is presented as a video and a protocol. At the eleven-month follow-up, the patient was free of pain, without a recurrence. It is advised to wait some months after the initial hernia repair before removing the ring, since the mesh needs time to become well integrated into the surrounding tissue. The operation is safe

12. Ring Finger Necrosis Due to a Ring (PubMed)

Ring Finger Necrosis Due to a Ring Crush injury to finger is one of the common traumas in clinical practice. The injured patients often have a ring on their finger. The ring can be removed by non-operative techniques or by cutting the ring off and thus avoiding any long-term consequences. If the ring is not removed, the finger may swell and gangrene could occur. We present an unusual case of gangrene terminal finger due to a ring. The gangrene of this type is rarely reported in literature (...) . The case is presented to stress the importance of removal of any circumferential foreign body on limbs before surgery.

17. Kommerell Diverticulum Should Be Removed in Children With Vascular Ring and Aberrant Left Subclavian Artery. (PubMed)

Kommerell Diverticulum Should Be Removed in Children With Vascular Ring and Aberrant Left Subclavian Artery. Right aortic arch with aberrant left subclavian artery is the most frequent cause of vascular ring. Ligamentum arteriosus division opens the ring but leaves the Kommerell diverticulum in place, with a risk of residual compression, aneurysmal dilation, dissection, or even rupture. A procedure consisting of translocation of the aberrant left subclavian artery to the left carotid artery (...) with removal of the Kommerell diverticulum and division of the ligamentum is currently advocated.Between September /2009 and August 2011, 12 consecutive patients underwent the foregoing procedure. Clinical findings, surgical procedure, complications, histopathologic findings, and follow-up data were retrospectively analyzed.Mean age at the time of operation was 7.7 years (median, 4.3 years, range, 0.9 to 18.9 years), and mean weight was 26 kg (median, 18 kg; range, 8.4 to 59 kg).

Glued intraocular lens scaffolding for Soemmerring ring removal in aphakia with posterior capsule defect. We describe using the glued intraocular lens (IOL) scaffolding technique to remove Soemmerring ring during secondary IOL implantation in aphakic eyes with associated posterior capsule defect following previous pediatric cataract surgery. Vitrectomy is performed, and the remnants of the posterior capsule are removed from the visual axis. A 3-piece foldable IOL is injected below (...) the Soemmerring ring, and glued transscleral haptic fixation of the IOL is performed. The Soemmerring ring is dislodged from the periphery with a Sinskey hook and brought into the center of the pupil over the surface of the IOL optic, where it is emulsified with the phacoemulsification probe. The optic of the preplaced IOL acts as a scaffold and prevents dislodgement of Soemmerring ring material into the vitreous cavity during emulsification. Placement of a secondary IOL can be successfully accomplished
